Wookie came to Ranger's Legacy Equine Rescue in January of 2018. He is a 17.2+ OTTB bay gelding who will be 6 in May of 2021 (January 2021 if you go by Jockey club rules). He was trained for the track but received a bone chip injury on his lower right front leg before he ever had a chance to run. The bone chip is situated below his fetlock joint on the front. He has had two years of rehabilitation and does not show lameness of any kind. He is easy to catch, he leads, bathes, loads, and stands for the farrier. He rides but will need some fine tuning. He would make a nice dressage prospect, hunter jumper (over low fences) prospect, a possible ranch horse. (he likes to move cows), or a nice trail horse ( watch the trees!😉). He DOES have one vice. He cribs (sucks air) if he gets bored.

His adoption fee is $1300 and requires an adoption contract. Contact us if you are interested in making this gentle giant a part of your family.
